I purchased this jacket for a film shoot and had a small time frame to receive it. So sew styles offered to send it express and was extremely diligent in updating me along the way until it arrived. The jacket is gorgeous on the actor it came clean no odor what so ever and no visible wear and tear. Im glad I made this purchase from so sew styles.
